The Wilton Way Café and London Fields Radio present a special series of podcasts from 1902 to 2012 to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee ahead of their free street party on Sunday June 3.
Presenters on Hackney’s micro radio station count down the eras, from the 1900s to 2000s, commemorating the best (and worst) of the decade with music, commentary and LFR’s distinct DIY flavour.
Our 1950s podcast is a tropical special from the Soul Report, a time when young calypsonians brought their unique Trinidadian sound to British shores. Soul Report’s Will Coldwell (DJ Royale) and Matt Wheeler (Vinyl Matt) showcase brass bands to 60s funk and from hip hop to nu-soul. They’ve a special guest appearance from Nostalgia Steelband, featuring bandleader and Hackney resident, Lionel McCalman.
